After months -- let alone years -- of bearing the brunt of Ronda Rousey's attacks and accusations, now is the time for a little payback, courtesy of longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) rival of "Rowdy," Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino.

Why you always lyin', Ronda?

Holly Holm's incredible knockout finish (highlights) of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight queenpin Ronda Rousey at the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) blockbuster inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia last night (Sat., Nov. 14, 2015) set the world, as well as social media, ablaze, setting up a prime opportunity for the Invicta FC featherweight champion to troll "Rowdy."

Even fellow "Fight Valley" co-star Miesha Tate joined in on the fun.

Rousey was supplanted by the former boxing champion Holm in an unforgettable showing (recap), where the latter withstood a throw from the Judo Olympian and plastered her face with elbows and straight lefts, for which she earned a huge bonus paycheck.

The 28-year-old was transported to a local hospital "Down Under" for a split lip and will receive an immediate title rematch with "Preacher's Daughter" upon her return to the Octagon, provided she doesn't "disappear" for too long.

Cyborg, meanwhile, now has more ground to push for a 140-pound catchweight bout following the loss by Rousey.
